When will Conor McGregor return to the Octagon?

Dana White and Conor McGregor had a lot to say about the Irishman’s return to the UFC. McGregor has claimed he will be back in 2022. However, there is no official confirmation of the same.

Nonetheless, ‘The Notorious’ claims to be on the right track when it comes to his recovery.

“I feel like I could kick it right now. Honestly, I feel like I could kick a kick right now, but I just have to listen to the doctors, listen to the people who guide me. This is what I have done so far, I got into the work and I’m back on my feet. It’s so good to be back on your feet, ”said Conor McGregor. (h / t: The Independent)

While MMA loyalists remain focused on getting Conor McGregor back to the cage, it’s also important to think about the Irishman’s next opponent. The Dubliner has now lost two trotting fights. He will surely be looking to move up the lightweight rankings.

Some believe a fight with Tony Ferguson would make the most sense for McGregor. “El Cucuy” is currently on a three-game losing streak. Fighting still has the potential to be a barn burner, given the fighting styles of the two. Other names that have been suggested include Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier.
